Hataraku Saibou Black Episode 6 Spoilers

Episode 5 begins with Helper T Cell issuing commands to Killer T Cells about viruses and cancer cells. AA2153 travels to the scalp to deliver oxygen to the hair roots, where he meets the rapidly replicating Hair Matrix cells and the Pigment Cell. Later, he runs into U-1196.

As they discuss the body’s code black environment, Killer T cells emerge from the lymphatic vessel. Their leader approaches U-1196 and berates her for her and other White Blood Cells’ failure to do their duties during the gonococci incident (episode 4). U-1196 accepts the criticism and later tells AA2153 that she doesn’t care about what others say to her; she is most concerned about maintaining peace in the body.

The Killer T Cells are drastically over-worked and soon start attacking the Hair Matrix Cells, believing them to be cancer cells. This leads to spot baldness. AA2153 unsuccessfully tries to reason with the Killer T Cells. He then remembers what U-1196 said earlier about maintaining peace in the body and starts resolutely delivering oxygen to the affected area so that the remaining hair will not fall off. Suddenly, Steroids arrive and subdue the Killer T Cells and the Helper T cell.

The episode ends as the Killer T Cells leader breaks down crying when AA2153 tells him that he doesn’t have to work any longer. As the title suggests, episode 6 might be about kidney stones and blood in the urine. Here is a trailer for the next episode.
